Saturday Mumblings.

We were up about 06:00AM had our coffee, Donna decided to try to get another nap. She has the restaurant tonight so she likes an extra nap on Saturdays. It turned out to be a gorgeous day, the temps got up to 65 and the kid’s decided they wanted to play with their friends behind us and walk to the park as a group, we all agreed ( parents) so off they went.They will be tired puppies after being out in the fresh, Brandon the boy behind us and his sister Taylor have a trampoline and some play equipment in the back yard and all afternoon it has been getting hard use.

Donna left for the restaurant at a little before 04:00PM and I expect the kid’s to come rolling in about 05:00PM, then I will have to decide what to have for supper, Thank God they are easy to feed. Nicole is like her Grandpa you just put a plate of food of most any kind in front of her and she makes some noises and it’s gone, she is generally in the clean plate club with me every night. Adam sometimes is a little harder to get to decide what he will eat. But with playing all day they will both come in the door saying they are starved.

Went out today and hitched up the generator to the trailer and it is working fine. Then I turned on the propane tanks and checked the stove and furnace for operation and leaks. since both had been removed and installed during the repair work, they both passed with flying colors, have to wait for a warmer day to try the A/C but since it wasn’t touched it should still be fine. I will wait about a week and then test the water lines and pump and that should be it except for turning on the refrigerator about three days before we leave, that to stayed in so it should be fine.

Tomorrow I will roll under it on a creeper and check the springs, suspension and the tire pressure.

Each day that goes by I get a little more excited, we have the route setup already in Streets and Trips and most of it I have been on already in the bus, so the only part I haven’t traveled is the Atlanta to Inverness Fla stretch which is all one interstate until you get close.

That’s about it for today, Everyone have a great weekend and be safe out there. Sam & Donna..


  1. Geesh ! Been so busy or no Internet connection I didn't know about a trip you are planning.

    Sounds like all systems are GO!

  2. So glad you two are getting away for while...It's good for the soul.

  3. I so love it when it's time to start planning our travels. I leave all the RV stuff to Jim and we make up a check list so it all gets covered. You are going to have such a great time.

  4. Sure sounds like you're getting everything all ready to roll o.k. Counting down the days now, eh? That will be such a nice trip for you guys. Bet you and Donna can hardly wait.
